There is a skewed gender balance amongst researchers at AU, where too many female research talents fall off on the career ladder from Ph.D. to professor. This has to change. Therefore, AU put focus on gender equality in research with a conference on 8 March 2019. Photo: Anders Hyllander

Targeted efforts are needed to get more women in science

Things are moving too slowly when it comes to improving the gender balance in technical and scientific fields. But specific and targeted efforts do make a difference and they are necessary. Things won’t change by themselves. These were the overall conclusions when AU focused on gender balance at a conference on 8 March.
